Some MobileMe Users Still Without Email

CNN Money reports that some MobileMe customers are still without email service.

The Cupertino, Calif., company has been migrating its .Mac pay email service to an upgraded version, called MobileMe. But in doing so, it has run into problems including service outages and customers losing access to their accounts. It's the latest in a string of issues that have cropped up since the launch of the latest iPhone, an unusual turn for a company known for its attention to detail in its products and services.

According to the Apple's own MobileMe support site, 1% of MobileMe members cannot access MobileMe Mail. The outage has reportedly lasted for 4 days. Apple's discussion forums and our own have seen a number of posts from affected MobileMe customers.

Apple's MobileMe launch as been marred with delays and apologies surrounding the service. MobileMe is Apple's new $99/year service which replaces .Mac and offers customers web-based email, calendar, addressbook, online storage as well as sync services.
